pretzels. the very snack complicit in the failed 2002 assassination attempt on george w. bush when he choked on a bachmann pretzel. if the assassination had succeeded it would have prevented bush from invading iraq and killed saddam hussein. -- this is really hard. all right, let's try and do this in a simpler way. earlier in the program we learned the bank hsbc works with al qaeda. if there was some way, islamic ter wist-- terrorist money directly to michele back pan let's say through a 2008 campaign donation. let's look at the chart again.

w. bush results in those with the best political connections getting their hands on the most money. because the guys who can hire the former members of congress as their lobbiests are not mom and pops. the tax breaks were handouts. the guys who were going to get their hands on the pie are the guys with the lobbiests. >> i think really i don't like the idea that obama grew the government. we had the worst recession since the great depression. and what was a strategy was to increase government spending and put more money back in people's pockets through increasing unemployment insurance which was done every time we enter recession which is the worst recession. we spent a lot of money to deal with a problem that obama inherited. i don't think you can leap from that and say this is a guy who can build a giant government. he is a pretty small government kind of guy. i think once we get out, completely out of this recession and once we start getting the economy, once the economy looks like it can manage on its own you are going to see the cutbacks. >> and projections in terms of governme
. there is no credible evidence to support this proposition. during the administration of george w. bush, the department of education publishes a highly respected study on tuition price increases. it found that the primary driver of tuition price increases in public institutions where over 3/4 of our graduate students attend college, is the change in state funding as states invest less money in higher education. the institutions respond by raising prices. the study found no relationship between the availability of federal and state grants and the ensuing chore -- tuition price increases in public or private not-for-profit institutions. as institutions raise prices, they have an obligation to ensure they increase their own financial aid program to hold harmless these neediest students. last year, our state cut michigan state university appropriation by 15%. our board raised tuition 6.9% to compensate in part for these cuts. the board also increased our own institutional grant aid by 10% with 83% of these grants dollars going to students with financial need. this is an example of what institutions need to

. the challenge corporation, which was a major initiative of president george w. bush, said we should invest in those companies that are committed to the rule of law and will and corruption and a sensible ideas. if people are wasting money, to heck with them. we do not need to give them that money. the american people should not expect us to give them that money. >> let me do what i enjoy doing so much -- put you on the spot a little bit. your secretary of state today. we have this fiscal cliff that we are facing. we may have sequestration of our military. we may have another downgrade of our debt. who knows where this will go. you have to go up on the hill and make the case for doubling -- for spending more. how would you do that today? >> i think that i would make it a very clear that the security of the united states depends on the fact of us having friends around the world and countries where people are able to live a decent life and where, in fact, they -- there is not an environment terrorists can take advantage of. there is no direct line between poverty and terrorism, but does not ta

would want him, i think, to display the insight and fortitude to say that -- that george study bush had when he launched a search -- geroge w. bush had when he launched the surge, when everybody in his inner circle was against that. but the only way the inner circle change -- the only way the narrative changes is when assad does not fall, nbc 100,000 people dead. -- when you see 100,000 people dead. i do not know where the line is where suddenly that is not a narrative you want to have any more. but i suspect that it is somewhere between 100,200 thousand people dead. where that line is -- 100,000 and 200,000 people dead. you hear the argument on the republican side, let them all slaughter each other. without a look at least -- calculation -- -- without a strategic calculation. i think that that is also powerful. i would emphasize, if you had to put your finger on something that will change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. i think that president obama is out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey, or if you see the slaughter accelerating at such a rate that we are
